First time visiting Akari! The restaurant was pretty small and tucked away in a shopping center. We decided to get the salmon tower, eel roll, flaming hot roll and a side of calamari! Portions were definitely nice-especially the salmon tower. I really enjoyed everything and thought the sushi was overall good! The calamari was okay though, nothing too special. Service was great as our waiter was very attentive! Definitely check it out if you're in the area! Food: 4.5/5 Ambiance: 3/5 Service: 5/5
On flavor alone i would give one star. Presentation was good, but the flavor was just the worst. You have to work hard to make shrimp and crab taste bad.
Ok so Covid has had a toll on all of us and I have ordered so much take out. It is super hard to find a good sushi place. AKARI is hands down the best sushi I have had in a long time. Its always fresh and tasty. They have unique rolls that are sooo good. Portion sizes are great to. I can't wait to hit this place in person once things settle down a bit more.
Late post, came here for the first time early this month (March 2021) and the greeter/waitress was friendly and bc it was a late lunch there was no wait.I ordered the chicken teriyaki bento box and a california roll bc the 2 in the box is not enough ?. All of the items in the bento box were delish. The teriyaki flavor was not overpowering and the chicken was tender. One of my favorites were the tempura, all of them, they had a great crunch and still a good bite to the veggies (they were not soggy) and not too oily. The california roll was also great! Would definitely come back when I'm in Plano.
Once again Akari exceeds all my expectations! Great place with a great atmosphere to get some amazing sushi!
Good food. Terrible customer service.Employees at this restaurant should know the meaning of treasuring a customer as many Asian cultures do. The food is really good, but all of that becomes a bitter-sweet experience with the way they treat you. I ordered a roll with special indication to prepare it as non spicy. Result? they took out the fish!!!!! No options to compensate for that, even if it was a misunderstanding on both sides. A simple "sorry" would make a difference, instead of arguing back and charging full price for delivering a half dish.UPDATE AFTER OWNER RESPONSE:No, you missed totally the point. It is not about the roll itself (plus I never drove back to your restaurant), it is about YOUR ATTITUDE towards your customers (not even an apology, just arguing back on your side). If you don't know about how a company should treat its stakeholders, well, try to search some management courses or go to business school. How professional you look responding "lol" to a customer review?!

Excellent experience. They were accommodating and polite. Good music and atmosphere. Food surpassed expectations. Would recommend this to anyone who loves Japanese food.
The place was a very professional environment. The chefs that made the sushi were masters at their craft and knew everything they were doing. The crab and shrimp was very good. Definitely worth a visit again.
We were pleasantly surprised! The food was fresh and the service was very good. We will definitely be back!
Recommend the bento boxes. Haven't tried everything yet, but nothing has been bad so far!
I had the sushi, it was delectable. I have never had sushi this fresh, flavorful and just melted in my mouth. I am definitely coming back here again. I’m bringing my children, my friends, and my family. I would even sponsor this place if I could. Go here, eat here.
I loved it here and would definitely recommend to sushi lovers. I got the bento box and it was absolutely delicious, the customer service was amazing and our waiter was the absolutely the best and I would come back here if I want sushi!
Super tasty ramen! We also got a delicious California roll and an order of Gyoza. I'm sure we'll be back and will most likely take people with us...ya know if that's ever going to be 'a thing' again.
